That's a very clean ship's floor...

Put some pants on when you're fetching eggs!

In this situation ALWAYS better to be safe than sorry.

Even in an emergency they add "if you please"... polite all the way to hell.

Well, you both dropped everything.

What a horrendous job. I'll stay land-side and churn butter.

Swinging axes on rough floors strewn with blood in bare feet. No wonder 35 was elderly.

Back to work you gawkers! Let me gawk!

Slade always getting in trouble the rambunctious rapscallion :)

All the gems of araby! Amber grease! A fortune!

That's a horrible smelling under-deck.

That sucks.

Tropics to frozen wastes... Was that an elder man with his pants down on the bow?

The men have their minds set on a target.

Mr. Holland Jones

Ugh! Naught good comes from bird gaming. The good doctor has reached a level of pale I thought not attainable by any man, even with his natural head start.

Cactus stew!

An underwater picture box... Ingenious!

Violin marathon.

Then a stick we shall be...

Peter Weir brings a generic idea to the screen with brilliant execution.

Some films are great because they uses the things they excel at to their advantage. Their greatness comes from the fact that they know exactly where their strength lies. By contrast, other films are great because they master every single aspect of filmmaking. It is proof of a vision come to life on the screen through cooperation of several talents. Peter Weir's adaptation of Patrick O'Brian's naval novel is a perfect example of the latter. Weir places the viewer in the middle of the roaring seas. It's a perfect depiction of the unpredictable nature of the ocean; delicately serene at times and ferociously violent at others. Russell Crowe displays an impressive portrayal of Captain Jack Aubrey, the dedicated and determined commander of his ship, but the rest of the cast should not go unnoted. The mission is to capture a French vessel Acheron. There is a mix of joviality and dire consequence in the air, which perfectly communicates the general atmosphere on the boat; carefree despite the inevitability of it all. This is helped, in part, by the score, which has a blend of thunderous cinematic compositions and beautiful classical pieces. It sets the adventure at full speed, sufficiently prepared for a journey at sea, topped off by an exciting finale. Watching Captain Jack go through much character development is quite the experience, and it manages to create much suspense in the film. There's something to be said about this movie's depiction of fear's influence on people. In the end, though, it's a movie about a captain and his ship that doesn't deserve to be as well-made as it is. Peter Weir is a fantastic director who never fails to impress.

Masterfully done movie

Master and Commander is a sea tale set in the 1800s, in the Napoleonic Wars. In this almost two hours long movie we follow the commander of a British ship and he's crew in a journey that reminds me of those kinda old books that are so amazing to read and immerse you in such level that I can always come back to them a be as amazed as the first time I read those lines. The plot of this movie is epic, magical and touching.

Wish I had more to say, but this movie is good at everything it does. Visuals are on point, acting is on point, no fillers and no unnecessary things. This is a movie you must see, period.
